why in a minute he's not just another whackadoo. live to dallas, texas, where ted cruz is about to speak in just a moment. see the big defund obama care banner which lets you know what the event is going to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august
with texas representative waukeen castro and the reverend al sharpton. >>> as the outrage over russia's anti-gay laws continue to grow, we're beginning to get a disturbing picture of what life is like there for its lgbt citizens. my guest tonight is russian, openly gay and about to flee the country. >>> plus, stop and frisk and edward snowden, what do they have in quhcommon? a whole lot more than you might think. >>> we begin on the front lines of voter suppression, with multiple developments across the country, not the least of which is the attorney general of the united states eric holder suing the state of texas, two states suing the federal government back, and a prominent republican lambasting the republican fwo b governor of north carolina over that state's brand new voting requirements. today the justice department announced plans to file a new lawsuit against the state of texas over its voteer i.d. law and intervene as a party in another case involving texas redistricting. attorney general holder said "he will not allow the prime court's recent decision to be interpreted as open sea
you do in the other parks. he had 86 in texas. looks like a lot, but turns out that texas was such a great hitters' park, everyone had an increase like that. if you go with each ball player that's accused of using the stuff that either did use it or accused of using it and what performance was enhanced by it, you can find out for just about everything like that. but no one does. they look at roger clemens and say, well, when he was 42, you know, he won 15 games. 40 years ago won 23 games a the the age of 42. what was he on? >> this class of sort of baseball greats going back, you know, about 10, 15 years now. almost every one of the sort of leaders of which is now under some kind of scandal report in the hall of fame. sometimes it seems there needs to be some sort of blanket suspicion on how to deal with -- morally, i don't mean in terms of the infraction. but what happens when they come to the hall of fame. >> well, my guess is that the next generation is simply not going to care as much. what are you going to do? not go to the games? not root for your favorite players be
. >>> plus a texas megachurch where ministers push faith healing over vaccinations is now at the epicenter of a measles outbreak. why science is being ignored and kids are now paying the price. all that ahead. >>> but we begin tonight with the drumbeat for u.s. military strikes against sere wra. in just the last 24 hours since we last talked to you, a consensus among the united states and its allies has hardened remarkably quickly and it is apparent there will be military action against syria possibly by the end of the week. >> there's no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in syria. the syrian regime. the president believes, and i believe, that those who use chemical weapons against defenseless men, women and children, should and must be held accountable. >> that was, of course, vice president joe biden, who used a previously scheduled speech before the american legion to make those remarks. at the white house, spokesman jay carney was in day two of setting expectations. >> it is not our policy position to respond to this through regime change. we will take a
an occasion to watch this network, you should be familiar with texas republican congressman louie gohmert. in large part due to his propensity to say things like this. >> what we now have today is a holy quintet which goes against the laws of nature and nature's god. this president has allowed abuse of christians in the military, unlike any other religion. you have to close your embassies like a bunch of cowards. you really believe that the ones that want to destroy the united states are more stupid than those entrepreneurs in china? >> the reason we played clips of gohmert is because he's an entertaining and enraging reminder of what the right wing fringe in american politics thinks about the big issues of the day. let's make one thing clear. no one mistakes louie gohmert for a powerful presence in american politics. in other words, almost no one takes this guy seriously. except apparently for a whole bunch of folks in egypt who think gohmert is the voice of truth about american foreign policy. specifically egyptians who believe the u.s. and the muslim brotherhood have gone in cahoots to
against voting rights. john tower of texas and strom, who was also a secret dixie-crat. >> john lewis shows up with a speech in which he says, he's going to get up at that podium and say, we do not support the president's civil rights legislation, because it does not go far enough. >> the unsaid thing that we have mentioned through all of the last few days is black politicians couldn't speak. adam klain couldn't speak because of the politics. adam sat on the side and listened to the speak. >> why couldn't he speak? >> because no one knew what he was saying. and there was the tension with the kennedys and all of that. there was a lot of what we hear today, we romanticize that it didn't happen yesterday. it did. >> i remember dr. king, i have to tell you, he was controversial right to the end. when he started pushing for jobs, and then he started pushing against the vietnam war, i remember my brother saying, why doesn't he stick to his thing. the thing meant blacks were getting killed in vietnam. that thing enlarged, wasn't like he thought of the vietnam war, you know? >> reverend al sh
in as he did in texas. more so, chris, we -- this lawsuit, the naacp's lawsuit is tied to a movement. you know, we've been 15 weeks straight having moral monday. thousands of people gathering. 10,000 people last week in asheville. we are mobilizing through voter education, voter registration. we have direct action going on. >> so there's going to be more coming in terms of moving in a parallel track with the legal -- rick, the section 2 part of this lawsuit, which is part of the voting rights act which is an individual cause of action. how likely is that to succeed in your estimation? >> well, it's tough. i mean, this is one of the reasons why we were so upset that the supreme court effectively struck down section 5 which would have required north carolina, because of 40 of its counties being covered under section 5, to get approval from the voting rights department, the department of justice, to show that this wouldn't make the position of minority voters worse off. a section 2 claim is very tough to win. a section 3 claim, which is also being asked for, to try to get preclearance restor
